    • From New York's Lincoln Center of Performing Arts. Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic, the New York City Ballet and Metropolitan Opera stars are among the talent.

    • Omnibus aired a repeat of "Abraham Lincoln: The Early Years" on February 5, 1961. This program originally was broadcast as a one hour program in 1955, 1956 and 1959. The current version is substantially the same, but with minor re-editing, and is offered in observance of the Civil War Centennial and Lincoln's Birthday. The late James Agee is author of the script. The Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist won wide acclaim for this program.
